Professor of Diagnostic Radiology and Organ Imaging Dr Anil T. Ahuja will visit the Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP) next month to meet with clinicians and researchers with a view to future collaborations.
“I hope to interact with academic and clinical members of the department with a view towards exchanging ideas about research, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and newer clinical applications of our specialty,” said Professor Ahuja, Chairman of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Organ Imaging at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Chief of Service at the Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong.
Having obtained his radiology training in India and England, Professor Ahuja began his academic career at the Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology at the Faculty of Medicine, Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1988. He has a keen interest in the imaging of head and neck diseases and his research is focused on neck masses, lymph nodes, thyroid, parathyroid, salivary gland, and neck and head tumours.
Professor Ahuja said he is honoured and humbled to spend time at MHTP.
“Australia has always been known for high quality medical research and its translation into practical daily clinical practice.”
Professor Ahuja hopes to learn from the experience of MHTP clinicians and researchers.
“On a personal note, I am a passionate supporter of the Australian cricket team, except when they play India!”
“We are delighted to host Professor Ahuja, a world-renowned expert in ultrasound imaging,” said consultant radiologist and Head of Women’s Imaging at Monash Health Dr Monica Pahuja.
“Professor Ahuja is the team leader for the upcoming new ultrasound publication to join the rest of the best-selling Diagnostic Imaging reference series.”
Professor Ahuja has published extensively in peer reviewed medical journals, lectured at international conferences and is Assistant Editor for Clinical Radiology. He has edited ten books on radiology and authored numerous book chapters.
“I have always found Australia to be warm and welcoming and am looking forward to my visit there in May,” said Professor Ahuja.
